Forex Trading Related Interview Question
Hi I have attended one of the Telephonic interview related for one of the bank, Though its pure technical they target some of the Domain questions, these are question i felt blocker in convenicing them to in writing fool proof scenarios in testing these.
Can any one Elaborate the scenario how exactly they are testing for the following scenarios. It could be real helpful for me for gaining more knowledge on this area
1. Spot Trades are correctly booked for MYR/SGD & USD/CAD
2. Transaction report of all trades booked today are correct
3. Transaction report of all trades settled today are correct
4. Non functional: The trade booking work in Data centre disaster scenario
Those questions are so domain specific, I don't think most people can give you a good answer without researching the industry.
The key is defining, What is "correct"? That will get you to functional coverage.
Some things to ask yourself...
> Are there any specifications? From your employer? From your industry?
> What standards apply? Legal, industry standards
> What are the desired states?
Answer all these, you'll get a good level of functional test coverage.
David is spot on with this: "The key is defining, What is "correct"? ".
Assuming that you have an idea of what a forex spot trade looks like, "correctly booked" will depend on your data source, trade opening time (to the millisecond), whether the trade is buy/sell, trade close time, spread at times of opening and closing, and possibly all manner of permutations of limit or market open, trailing stops, guaranteed stops, etc.
